by the poor health consequences of the pollution or the anti environmental -- the good environment that is ruined by the pollution. those are called external realities of using something. power plants can use cold. it is cheaper and plentiful. the only problem is they are only paying for the coal, not the other consequences of burning coal. if you put a price on carbon, then using cold becomes a lot more expensive. then, using renewable fuels becomes a lot less expensive. a lot of economists, including republican economists, say you tax but you do not want a lot to reduce it. you get all the incentives for the private sector to figure out how to reduce the pollution and achieve the goals, because it is in their economic interests to do it. it is not the government running the show and managing from washington. it is the incentive out there to move our economy in transition it. a price on carbon could be a tax, a cap and trade, the exemption -- example is when we had the acid rain problem. they said they would not tell us how to do it. they will limit the amount of sulfur emissions

it's going to a different environment. therefore you have to be aware of who you meet, what you do and don't pack your common-sense and leave it behind, take it with you. talking about this specific case, i think we're hearing more about what is coming out. in fact there is even an eyewitness who says that she saw a hand of a woman out of the back seat of a car as a man was trying to apparently take something out of that back seat. it was in the same area where her body was found. of it appears to police that she may have been killed one other place and taken to the scene where her body was left. martha: they say her wallet was with her, her bracelet, earrings. as you sort of think about the area that she was in and what happened, how do you start to piece together a possible scenario in order to try to figure out -- to find and charge the people who did it? >> i have to say, it appears to be the turkish and the police over there are working with the u.s. law enforcement, f.b.i. and state department officials, have been really trying to scour whatever they can with regard to lead.
it is $125,000 as we have added so much more equipment for the environment. the good news is it is much better for the environment. but there has been a cost associated with that. so, costs are up and the lending is not what it once was. so we have many -- i showed you the small fleets are not growing the number of trucks they operate. in part the reason they are doing that, and i also showed you the age has gone up significantly so they are not worth as much as a 3-year-old truck, so we have many small fleets having to sell used trucks to afford one new one. part of that is because they cannot get financing for as much so they have to put more down. the of a thing on this that i have seen over the last two years is lease financing used to be 10%. any trucks that you would acquire in a year especially the smaller fleets would be maybe 10% of the trucks would be from the finance leasing and the rest of the purchases. today is 30 to 40% because it is the only way that they can get it. they can't get all of the financing that they need for the purchasers comes of they are turning more to t
